The Honor 10 can be termed a cheaper version of the Huawei P20. It has nearly the same internals save for the Leica-Huawei co-developed sensors. Its cheaper price tag has paid off as Honor has announced that it has sold over a million units since it went on sale.
The Honor 10 was released on April 19 in China and went on sale online and offline on April 27. Less than 5 minutes after it went on sale, Honor said online sales had crossed ¥400 million.
Today, Honor’s President, Zhao Ming, took to Weibo to announce that they have sold over a million units of the Honor 10 smartphone. This figure is only for China and doesn’t include the new markets the Honor 10 launched in recently.
The Honor 10 has a 5.84-inch display with a notch at the top and a 2280 x 1080 resolution. It is powered by the Kirin 970 processor which has a dedicated NPU for AI tasks. The chipset is paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of storage.
The Honor 10 may not have the Huawei P20’s Leica cameras but its sensors also have AI features. The primary camera is a 16MP sensor and it is paired with a 24MP secondary sensor. However, it uses the same 24MP selfie camera as the P20 series which also packs a lot of features and supports Face Unlock.
The rest of the specs include NFC, a USB-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, a dedicated Hi-Fi audio chip, and a 3,320mAh battery with support for Huawei’s Supercharge fast charging.
The 64GB Honor 10 is sold for ¥2599 (~$408) and the 128GB model is priced at ¥2999 (~$471).
